Beverly Hills Cop: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack
Top Customer Reviews
Patti LaBelle's solo viability continued with two songs. "New Attitude" embodies the energetic British New Wave electropop a la Flock of Seagulls, complete with synths, more than the soul she was known for during her LaBelle days. "Stir It Up" is another song in that mode, with that cool bass synth keyboard, and energy that rivals Phil Collins' rendition of "You Can't Hurry Love."
Shalamar's "Don't Get Stopped In Beverly Hills" makes this the second big soundtrack collaboration, the other being Footloose's "Dancing In The Sheets," also released in 1984.
"Emergency" by Rockie Robbins is a standout with amplified drums and pulsing synths. The Top Ten "Neutron Dance," later to turn up on the Pointer Sisters' breakthrough Break Out album, is more electropop than soul, and is representative of how in the 1980's, selected hits helped sell this soundtrack and boost popularity for the movie.
I wonder how many Eagles fans wanted to bop Glenn Frey after hearing "The Heat Is On." More pop than the country-rock his bandmates did, that's for sure. I couldn't get enough of that energetic number, with that catchy chorus and that accompanying wailing sax. This was produced by Keith Forsey of Billy Idol fame and Harold Faltermeyer, who has a key number here.Read more ›
BHC was without a doubt Eddie Murphy's finest movie and the soundtrack album is full of the best music to come out of the 1980's.
It features two fab songs from Patti LaBelle which could possibly be her finest work - "New Attitude" and "Stir It Up".
Harold Faltermeyer's "Axel F" theme is here too and that still remains infectious today - terrific music score that is hard to be beaten.
Glenn Frey's "The Heat Is On" is possibly the most successful pop song to feature a great saxaphone riff in it, and my favorite song on the album - "Neutron Dance" by the Pointer Sisters. A fantastic song which cannot be beaten in terms of how catchy it is. It was featured during the truck chase at the beginning - the best use of a song in a movie - bar none!!
Also on this album we have a few songs that didn't appear in the movie, but are still good. "Don't Get Stopped In Beverly Hills" by Shalamar is great, as is "Emergency" by Rockie Robbins and "Rock N' Roll Me Again" by The System. take particular notice to track 7 - "Gratitude" - performed by non other than Danny Elfman!!
However, the soundtrack is missing "Nasty Girl" by Vanity 6 - the song from the "Stripbar" scene in the movie. I don't know why they decided to keep that off the CD, but the soundtrack remains just excellent without it.
I have the original with the Rick James song and the 1985 CD release. All the songs are what the Mid - 80's Pop Music was all about. These songd transcended regular soundtrack music and became Top 40 Hits. Also, Glen Frey is also on the 'Miami Vice' T.V. Soundtrack (another Top 40 soundtrack to have).

I can't believe that's Danny Elfman! But still that's just one of the great songs on this soundtrack. You have Patti LaBelle stiring it up, and with "New Attitude". Read morePublished on Nov. 8 2000 by Alex
